Week 6 of the 2013 NFL live stream and TV schedule gets underway tonight with two teams who are both in need of a win when the New York Giants travel to Chicago to take on the Bears. To say the Giants are desperate for a win would be an understatement.
According to a Sportsline report on Oct. 10, the G-Men will try to avoid their first 0-6 start in 37 years and somehow salvage their season.
When the season began, the Giants and their fans had visions of being the first team to play in the Super Bowl as the host team. Unfortunately with a 0-5 start, now they are just hoping to finish .500.
"For us, we're not even thinking about the playoffs now," linebacker Spencer Paysinger said. "Right now we are 0-5 and looking for our first win, hopefully coming on Thursday."
Maybe a trip to Chicago is just what the Giants need to break their losing streak. New York has won two straight against the Bears and their last four at Soldier Field, but if the Giants defense continues to give up almost 40 points a game, they could be in for a long night.
The Bears started the season like a house of fire, but have quickly turned into a wilting flame over the past two weeks. After a 3-0 start, Chicago is now 3-2 and the Jay Cutler boo-birds have come back in droves.
On paper this games seems like an easy win for Chicago, but this game is big for both teams. New York is 0-5, yet they are still in the race for an NFC title because the Cowboys and Eagles are tied for first place in the division – with a 2-3 record.
It’s not often teams start 0-5 and still have a real chance at the postseason, but because the NFC East teams are all off to a bad start, the G-Men still do have hope – but they would have to beat the Bears tonight to keep it alive.
Las Vegas odds makers have the Bears set as a 7.5 point favorite (or 8 in many casinos this morning) with the total set at 47.
Prediction: It's hard to get a read on these teams, but on a short week and at home, Chicago should win this game. However I think the Giants will battle to the end.
Prediction: NY Giants +7.5
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:25 p.m. EST. The game can be seen on the NFL Network.
